Herald of Jan. 16, 1920
Martinsburg Borough Council convened in regular session Monday evening, January 5, 1920, and was called to order by President H. E. Brown in the chair. Members present: H. E. Brown, H. R. Bowers, I. E. Brumbaugh, J. F. Greaser and E. H. Lykens. Minutes of previous meeting were read and approved. The regular order of business was dispensed with and council proceeded at once to the consideration of the account of Nelson Kein, tax collector, and the account of W. U. Skyles, borough treasurer. Tax collector’s account showed balance due on 1918.
The good roads meeting was postponed owing to the inclement weather. Two important library meetings were held, one at the Skyles school where Mr. John Wareham teaches and the other at Smithfield where Miss Cora Shock teaches. Mr. F. S. Keith of the Vocational school, addressed the audience at the Skyles school, and Mr. E. E. Byers at the Smithfield meeting. The programs given by the children reflect credit for the teachers whose painstaking care in training was much evidence.
